 Canadian Agricultural Safety Week (CASW) takes place this year from March 11 to 17. This annual public awareness campaign spotlights the importance of safe agriculture. This year, the focus is on supporting senior farmers through resources, safety advice articles, infographics, and more. This is the last year of the Be an AgSafe Family CASW campaign that focused on children in 2016, adults in 2017, and now in 2018, seniors.

“Canadian Ag Safety Week really asks farm families to have conversations about safety,” says Marcel Hacault, executive director of Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA). “Everyone has a role on the farm. The AgSafe family is a team, and everyone can contribute in a safe and productive way.”

As a part of CASW, organizers have produced a number of resources focusing on senior producers including infographics and a series on mental well-being. 2018 also marks the second year of the AgSafe Ribbon campaign. The AgSafe Ribbon campaign celebrates the AgSafe Family and raises awareness about the importance of farm safety.
